The price is incredibly reasonable and reflects the rustic feel of the whole place.The three bed...

About the neighbourhood
La Grande Maison is situated between the market towns of Loudun and Thouars and a short drive from Saumur or Chinon with easy access to Center Parcs, Puy du Fou, Futurescope and the famous wine regions of the Loire Valley.

Saumur is situated across the Loire. Half the town is on the south bank while the remainder is on an island. The town is very beautiful in particular the Chateau on the top of the hill looks out over the Loire river and is a great place to enjoy stunning views. Saumur is the home of the world famous Cadre Noir and the National Equestrian school.

A short way upstream are the troglodyte caves of the Loire Valley. Some are used as cellars and for wine production including Gratien & Meyer producers of the very refined sparkling wine of the region. You can enjoy a ve...
